Marchesa cofounders Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig have expanded their exclusively formalwear brand and introduced a daywear collection. The design duo have named their line Marchesa Vogage, joining their bridal collection and their line of cocktail dresses under the moniker Notte. With bohemian references as well as the first-hand experience of both designers being pregnant with their second child, it is no doubt going to be a collection of glamour-for-the-daytime, and the line being priced at a very reasonable price range of $100-$400. According to WWD, nothing in the collection is plain or basic, in true Marchesa style, and no doubt this more accessible and wearable line is still just as covetable as the high-end red carpet dress line.
The collection includes printed silks, furs, embellished denim and pieces with extensive embroidery, Chapman explained at a recent preview of the collection:
We felt like we needed it to have personality. There would have to be a reason for someone to buy it… Something Keren and I had always wanted to do was a loungewear deal – the Marchesa in her palazzo.”
I can’t wait to see the rest of this collection! Affordable Marchesa?!
Marc Jacobs has been named as the 2013 creative director for Diet Coke. Following the footsteps of Karl Lagerfeld (2011) and Jean Paul Gaultier (2012), Jacobs will design three cans, three bottles and star in three ad campaigns for the iconic drink’s brand. Referencing the most iconic and memorable looks and female empowerment from the eighties, nineties and 2000s, the three cans, bottles and campaigns will represent the corresponding theme.
Can we please just take a moment of appreciation for this… He’s almost 50. FIFTY. Ugh.
According to WWD, the creations will be unveiled this month, with Jacobs even tampering with the Diet Coke logo.
Watch a short interview with Marc about the campaign here.
WHAT? NO. NO. NOOOO.
Cancel PFW. No wait, cancel Fashion Week altogether. There will be no elaborate, spectacular extravaganza for the Alexander McQueen collection at the upcoming Paris Fashion week, according to WWD. Sarah Burton, who is currently expecting twins, will be on maternity leave during Fashion Week and therefore the collection will be showcased as a presentation to limited members of press, buyers and PR, narrowing the guest list down to 100.
Don’t get me wrong, the girl needs a break, ESPECIALLY as she’s creating two lives, but my God, Paris Fashion Week just won’t be the same!
Wishing Sarah Burton all the best with the rest of her pregnancy and birth, fashion can be on hold until September, right?
